ODI Career

Ashton Turner has scored 142 runs in 6 ODIs at 35.50. He played his first ODI against India in Hyderabad on 2 March 2019. In that game, Australia batted first and scored 236/7. The visitors began badly when they lost Finch in the second over. However, an 87-run partnership for the second wicket between Khawaja and Stoinis remedied the situation somewhat. 10 runs later though, Australia suffered a body blow when they lost Khawaja who had completed his 50 off 76 balls and was beginning to look very comfortable. Handscombe and Maxwell began another repair job that lasted only 36 runs before Handscombe fell for 19 off 30 balls. Batting at number six in the order, Turner made 21 runs from 23 balls with a four and a six. Taking guard when Handscombe was out and the scorecard read 133 for 4, Turner shared a fifth-wicket stand of 36 with Maxwell. Australia lost Turner and Maxwell in quick succession and the momentum was gone. A score of 236 was never going to be enough to daunt the strong Indian batting lineup. Sadly for Turner and Australia, India chased down the target easily with 6 wickets and 10 balls remaining.

In the next match of the series played in Mohali, Turner achieved his highest ODI score. India batted first and scored 358/9. Chasing a daunting target, Australia accomplished it with 4 wickets and 13 balls in hand. As in the previous game, Australia’s innings did not begin on an optimistic note. They lost Finch in the first over and Shaun Marsh in the fourth one to have the scorecard read 12 for 2. But Khawaja and Handscombe had other ideas and stitched together a third-wicket stand of 192 before Khawaja departed for a well-made 91 off 99 balls. Glenn Maxwell had a short stint at the wicket during which he made 23 off 13 balls. At this stage, Handscombe was holding the fort and he found a perfect ally in Turner who made a major contribution to the win, scoring an unbeaten 84 from 43 balls with 5 fours and 6 sixes. Batting at number six, he took guard at the wicket when the Australian scorecard read 229 for 4 at the fall of Glenn Maxwell’s wicket. Turner shared stands of 42 with Peter Handscombe and 86 with Alex Carey as he shepherded Australia home to a famous victory.

In the next match held in Delhi, the guests batted first and scored 272/9. Khawaja who had found his form in the previous game continued from where he left off in Mohali. After a fruitful opening stand of 76 with Finch, the left-hander found an ally in Handscombe who was stroking the ball well. Together, the two added 99 runs before Khawaja departed for 100 off 106 balls with 10 fours and 2 sixes. With Maxwell and Handscombe following Khawaja to the pavilion soon after, Stoinis and Turner were left to try and repair the situation. Batting at number six, Turner contributed 20 off 20 balls with two fours and a six. During his innings, he shared a fifth-wicket stand of 28 with Stoinis. From a precarious 225 for 6, in the 45th over, Australia ended up setting India a relatively respectable target of 273. When India batted, they were bowled out for 237 to give Australia a handy 25-run win. Turner last appeared in an ODI against India in Bengaluru in January 2020.

T20I Career

Turner has played 11 T20Is and scored 57 runs at 14.25. He has also taken 3 wickets at 14.00 with his best bowling figures of 2/12. He played his T20I against Sri Lanka in Melbourne in February 2017. In that game, Australia batted first. Finch and Klinger opened the innings for the hosts shared a 76-run stand for the first wicket. Finch departed 10 runs later and when Henriques was dismissed in the 16th over, the scorecard read 116 for 3 and Australia were looking down the barrel. Batting at number 5, Turner contributed 18 off 13 balls. During his innings, he shared a fourth-wicket stand of 37 runs with Travis Head and thanks to his effort, the hosts ended up making 168/6 in their quota of 20 overs. In reply, Sri Lanka managed to chase down the target with 5 wickets to spare off the last balls of the innings in a thrilling finish. Incidentally, Turner also achieved his best bowling figures in this match. He returned figures of 2/12 in two overs, taking the wickets of middle-order batsmen Gunaratne and Siriwardana. In the next match of the series in Geelong, the hosts batted first once again and posted 173 on the scoreboard. Batting at number five, Turner contributed 7 from 6 balls. As events transpired, Sri Lanka chased down the runs with 2 wickets to spare on the last ball. As in the previous match, Turner shone with the ball, taking 1/15 in 2 overs, responsible for the wicket of opening batsman Upul Tharanga. On 1 November 2019, Sri Lanka and Australia clashed again in Melbourne. The visitors batted first and were restricted to 142/6 in their allotted overs. In reply, Australia made 145/3 in 17.4 overs. Batting at number five, Turner scored an unbeaten 22 off 15 balls, his highest T20I score, to guide his team home. Turner last appeared in a T20I game against Pakistan in Perth in November 2019. Pakistan batted first and scored 106/8 before Australia chased down the target without losing a wicket, with more than 8 overs to spare.

IPL Career

Ashton Turner has played 4 IPL matches and made 3 runs at 3.00. Rajasthan Royals invested in Turner in the IPL auction for the 2019 season but during his inaugural year in the competition, Turner got to play only four games. Unfortunately for the Australian batsman, he could not make an impact on those games.
